Product Description

Introducing the RICA iSoftloader System!

Improve performance with the touch of a button!
It’s really that easy – with the RICA iSoftloader System. For 1999 and up models.

How It Works:

The RICA iSoftloader System allows you to switch between standard ECU software and RICA performance software with the touch of a button. You can also revert back to the standard software program in minutes, whenever you wish. RICA performance software is easily downloaded over the Internet.

Step 1: Read ECUStep 2: Modify SoftwareStep 3: Program ECU
The first step is to tune your car is to read the original software from the ECU via the OBD2 diagnostics port. In many cases, RICA may already have an exact matching original version of software for your VIN, in which case reading the original software is not required. Once the original software is read from the ECU, it is uploaded to RICA for modification. Once RICA receives the original software, it is modified by a qualified software engineer. A software file can take 15 - 45 minutes to prepare. Once complete, the modified software is made available for download to program the car. The modified software is downloaded from RICA and programmed into the ECU, overwriting the original software in the ECU. After the programming is complete, the car should be test driven to ensure that it is performing correctly and that no DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) are present.
